MG Jesta Custom by enc86 MG Jesta Custom by enc86
Here is my Finished 1/100 Master Grade Jesta model. Hand painted and weathered, with the exception of flat black, primer (krylon) and spray top coat (testors dull) I built this kit as a nice diversion from 1/35(and a procrastination project, as I should of been building a diorama) This kit was pretty dang incredible and allot of fun to paint, put together, and of course play with XD  For the most part I built him "outta the box" swapped beam saber color and gave him old MG handguns and a knife.

MG gundam kits have always been a bit intimidating to me. They contain allot of parts (moving parts too) are pretty complex and there is allot to screw up. Years ago I built a few MG's without paint and thought I would never reach a level where  could paint one. Anyways with this build I wanted to keep it simple and not take too much on. While I had a bunch of smaller mistakes and I am not incredibly impressed with some of my effects, I am pretty proud of what I was able to accomplish on this one. Being a bit unsatisfied is a good thing as it will make me want to do even better on the next one of these I build.

Anyways I built this guy in the hopes of getting tons of pictures of him. This weekend I hope to see how he does outside and do a bit more of a goofy photo shoot. I got a few more "accessories" I am working on for him that will be done this weekend if the weather is good......

Questions, comments and suggestions welcome!

great to hear. they are very fun models and really worth the $$$.
this is a bigger model (MG master grade line) they around the 50-100 range. here is a listing for this one www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Je…

and there are smaller ones as well that are pretty nice, the HG line(high grade) www.amazon.com/Bandai-RGM-96X-… think you would have a ton of fun with a "HG gundam" model. even if you hated it, the parts would be cool for you to use else where.

they come molded in different colors so you don't have to worry about painting(tho i do paint mine) and they are snap tight so you dont have to worry about glue.

if you got a "HG gundam" kit(just Google or use amazon or whatever) then yes there would be a way to do it.  alot of the parts are like armor plates, so i could see how you could convert those parts for that kinda project. "kitbashing" might be the easiest and most cost effective way to do that kinda thing as well.
